Recommended Posts

Could I put in a request for anyone (including the poster above) who has a copy of that receipt to send it on to me please? That's a great price even a few months later and it would really help my bargaining efforts for this model. Thanks very much in advance. :)

cheers

Great buy mate.

I am also close to buying the LA46A650, but have some questions targeted at LA4XA650 owners;

- When outputting from a PC via DVI->HDMI to the set, I assume 1920x1080 is displayed pixel perfect?

- I remember reading that a Samsung TV had troubles keeping connected to a PC, that it would drop out and take a minute to hand-shake, also switching to and from the HDMI PC Input channel was very slow... Was this a different model? How is the performance on this model?

- Can the TV detect when the PC is off / goes to sleep / sleeps the monitor? For example, usually I have my PC monitor sleep after 10 mins of activity. I'm guessing TV's don't worry about this feature?

Cheers guys!

Are you sure its 46 inch? Is that brand new? I went through all forum, and never seen anyone get it below $2300 for 46 inch.

We pick up a New Samsung 52in LCD today model LA52A650A1F and within minutes we noticed it had severe back light leaking through the Top right and Bottom right. The LHSide isn't that bad. Doesn't matter where you set the backlight settings right down to setting 2 from 10 its there. changing the Contrast/brightness makes no difference.

Have others had the same with this model? (PS I looks like a car headlight spraying light in further it goes the weaker it gets)

I'm just about to go pick up the LA46A650 for $2499 with a bonus $250 voucher from good guys. This is in Adelaide, so I wouldn't be surprised if the TV can be had for much cheaper in the Eastern states.

I'll answer my own questions for future reference for others ;)

- When outputting from a PC via DVI->HDMI to the set, I assume 1920x1080 is displayed pixel perfect?

Yes. Set zoom to "just scan". Default picture settings has sharpness at 75. This is way too sharp and makes text etc. look crazy. Set to 5 or less if you want your desktop looking 100% as it should.

- I remember reading that a Samsung TV had troubles keeping connected to a PC, that it would drop out and take a minute to hand-shake, also switching to and from the HDMI PC Input channel was very slow... Was this a different model? How is the performance on this model?

So far so good. Hand shaking is fast, no drop outs. Using Nvidia 8600GT with relatively recent drivers; detects HDMI monitor, defaulted to 1920x1080 60hz and has options for 1920x1080 24fps :)

- Can the TV detect when the PC is off / goes to sleep / sleeps the monitor? For example, usually I have my PC monitor sleep after 10 mins of activity. I'm guessing TV's don't worry about this feature?

Unfortunately not. Just shows no signal.

Have the LA46A650

Similar problem

I run off the PC (hdmi) all the time, so about every second time we turn tele on it doesn't come on straight away and can take 10 to 50 seconds to come on

It can also go off by itself if after watching tele for a while then touch any button, then we have a black screen till it sorts itself out again

ANd the full guide is a big let down how it takes forever to scan through the chanels before you can use it

I would be interested to know if anyone has improves the guide with a firmware update?

me 2.

While the PC is running, unplug, wait, then replug back in the HDMI cable to the PC. Worked for me, after HORRENDOUSLY losing picture about every 1 second at it's worst to about 10 mins at best.

I haven't had this problem once yet, touch wood. Perhaps it's the PC? Have you had the chance to change PCs? What firmware is the TV running? Another thing to note is that my PC is on 24/7 (TV isn't obviously).

Looks like they are all sold out except 52" 6 series. Harvey Norman have the same price for the 46" 8 Series ($2,699) on their website which should be honoured in any store if you print it off. Valid until today only I think.

Harvey Norman price matched all of these today if you bring in the ad (and if they have stock). I got the 52" Series 6 (they had sold out of series 7). Plus they were giving away $250 gift cards with them.

Do the Series 4 LCD support 1080p input cause I moved the Playstation 3 from my Series 6 to the Series 4 and it's detecting 1080p on my native 720p. I thought this was not possible, was expecting 1080i but not 1080p!

Always thought the series 4 LCD was 1366x768? Is it actually displaying 1080p or just calling the source that?

Also, bit of a funny question for anyone who's interested in throwing in their two cents. I've currently got a 40" Series 6 LCD in my room but a friend at a certain retailer (both shall remain nameless) is able to get me th new 5 Series Plasma, 50" for whatever I can sell the Series 6 for. Does anyone think it's worth the switch? Side by side, I'd say that the Series 6 has a slightly brighter image (untweaked). But does anyone here see something I dont?

It's displaying 1080p (but it appears it's scaling down to 720p). I always thought that 1080i was the max supported on 720p screens. Thought I was seeing things when the HDMI scan detected 1080p and asked me if it wanted to keep this setting. I also scanned it twice aswell to make sure this isnt a mistake. Even the Samsung Series 4 is saying under HDMI1 1920x1080 60Hz. There was no "i" after the 1080.
